Nice one again. If you don’t mind a personal question? Sometimes when I’m winding down from the day or on a Saturday morning after my coffee, I feel an urge to go to the shop and work on a particular project. I really like that feeling and I’m glad when it comes along. Do you get that feeling too sometimes or are you just constantly feeling an urge to create the next piece? I only ask because I don’t know of anyone else as prolific as you are (or at least they don’t post here) and I wish I could do more.

Nice effect with the lighter streaks. From afar, looks like light hitting it.
